Apres la nuit

Devil idle

 

lying on a bed or a couch half awake
half sleepy from last nights celebration
thinking in slow motion unsteadily
maybe i am getting too old for inebriation

still yesterday was a great day
we fought and celebrated a glorious win after long
hard work coupled with some luck
always leaves you humming a sweet song

i check my mails idly surf my social net
the net is quiet this morning
as if it too celebrated a lot last night
but check on it , it will be partying by evening

now tasks have to be done
daily chores yet to be begun
so we shake off the idleness like a shaggy dog who got wet
prepare to carpe diem ready get set

still an idle shrug and an occasional yawn
reminds aging bones to rest before dawn
